Description:

AUGUST 18: JOHN AND IDA MAE SPECKER 7:00 Admission $10 From Andover, John and daughter Ida Mae will provide some fabulous fiddling on 8/18. Fiery Vermont-based fiddler John Specker - with full respect for, and mastery of, traditional Appalachian music - has profoundly influenced subsequent generation of old-timey fiddlers, including his daughter Ida Mae. John and his family are legendary for their darkly intense, primal style. John “created a whole- band sound through the complexity of his bowing technique…with it’s inventive and dizzyingly fast double and triple stops, while simultaneously singing and tapping a powerful foot percussion.” [ Cornell Folk Song Society, February, 2009]. http://www.thespeckers.com/
